My Mother

My Mother
Desha Kelly

She always gets the last word
Call her at 10:00 and the last word comes around 12:00
She’s a first-rate nutritionist
“We’ll get that weight off.”
And philanthropic
Replaces the embarrassing stuff
Marvels at your stupidity
“And what are you so sad about?”
Care-giver, lover of bratty children
I’ve a lot to be thankful for
